Ex-Newcastle Jets striker Kristian Brymora who is trialling with Watford FC U-23s, has been giving an insight into time with the Premier League side, as he chases his dream of signing with a European club.
The teenager features in a video diary in the new Aussies Abroad featured on the footballaustralia.com.au website.
Before he left for the UK Brymora had scored both goals in the Jets youth team’s shock 2-1 win over Northern NSW NPL leaders Lambton, but failed to get a place in the following game against Adamstown.
Although Brymore was on the brink of breaking into the Newcastle Jet’s first team last season, he decided he wanted to challenge himself and gain experience in the UK, so planned a trip to the UK that included spending a week training with Bromley FC before heading to Watford.
“The past 10 days I have been on trial with Premier League side Watford FC,” he said.
“It has been surreal to be in an environment like this, surrounded by world-class players, coaching staff and facilities.
“I have been trialing with the U-23s squad who are a very strong and competitive team.
“English football I have found to be a different style then to Australia, but since my time being on trial here I have already learnt so much and enjoy every minute of being at Watford.
“The past week has consisted of two sessions a day one at a high intensity and the other normally being tactical or technical.
“The team is also in the gym three times a week to improve their strength heading into the current season.
“Every morning we have to be at training at 8:45 where the academy sides and first team come together to have breakfast in the cafe, which is on the training grounds.
“After this we head into the gym to commence prehab before heading out into the field to train.”
He goes on to share his experience of playing English football during a game against sixth division side Wealdstone and how physical the game is played on English soil.
